Our Daily Bread 28th June 2018 Devotional – Ring in a Dumpster



Our Daily Bread 15 October 2019 Devotional

Our Daily Bread 28th June 2018 Devotional

Topic: Ring in a Dumpster

Read: Matthew 13:44–46 Bible in a Year: Job 11–13; Acts 9:1–21

Key Verse: Seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

Message: In college, I woke up one morning to find Carol, my roommate, in a panic. Her signet ring was missing. We searched everywhere. The next morning we found ourselves picking through a dumpster.

I ripped open a trash bag. “You’re so dedicated to finding this!”

“I’m not losing a two-hundred-dollar ring!” she exclaimed.

Carol’s determination reminds me of the parable Jesus told about the kingdom of heaven, which “is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field” (Matthew 13:44). Certain things are worth going great lengths to find.

Throughout the Bible, God promises that those who seek Him will find Him. In Deuteronomy, He explained to the Israelites that they would find Him when they turned from their sin and sought Him with all their hearts (4:28–29). In the book of 2 Chronicles, King Asa gained encouragement from a similar promise (15:2). And in Jeremiah, God gave the same promise to the exiles, saying He would bring them back from captivity (29:13–14).

If we seek God, through His Word, worship, and in our daily lives, we will find Him. Over time, we’ll know Him on a deeper level. That will be even better than the sweet moment when Carol pulled her ring out of that trash bag!

Prayer: Lord, help me to seek You with all my heart.

To find God, we must be willing to seek Him.
